B033 goes to House of Deputies

From BabyBlue

People are running to the House of Deputies; Reports coming in that a group of Bishops walk out of House to write Minority Report - more info coming
The attention now turns to the House of Deputies who will receive B-033. Outside it's pouring down rain and thunder continues to crash over the Convention Center. We are now waiting for B-033 to hit the Deputies floor.There is a rumor that a group of bishops walked out of the House. We are waiting for more information. Stay tuned.

On the ECUSA legislation page, the legislation under the current link still the second "Resolve" as reading: "Resolved, that this Convention therefore call upon Standing Committees and bishops with jurisdiction to exercise restraint by not consenting to the consenting to the consecration of any candidate to the episcopate whose manner of life presents a challenge to the wider church and will lead to further strains on communion."

This could be considered Windsor Complian for ordination of bishops. However, there is nothing about blessing SSUs.

"by not consenting to...."

The "candidate to the episcopate whose manner of life presents a challenge to the wider church...." is a large hole through which you could drive a church bus, but believe that enough bishops will accept the spirit of the resolution and not consent to the election of a sexually active homosexual bishop. If one is elected (and it is only a matter of time), then we will see when it comes time for consents.
